Zut Alors! How Can Selfies Save Landmarks? Find Out HERE!

| Filed under: FrancophiliaGIFs

selfie save paris landmarks

Paris, France…the city of selfies?

The city is looking to dissuade couples from attaching padlocks to various aging bridges on the Seine by asking them to upload romantic, hashtagged selfies onto a website dedicated to enduring love instead.

Sure, we all know there's nothing as romantic as a cold, steel lock affixed to an ancient bridge especially if you and your lover happen to be locksmiths, but these selfies will help make a difference!

Apparently, the padlocks are causing the bridges' railings to come down, so their solution? The hopefully soon to be trending hashtag #lovewithoutlocks!

This campaign is aimed to stop this tradition that only began about a decade ago, and already large stickers in French, English, and Spanish have been stuck on the Pont de l'Archeveche, saying the bridges "can't resist your love."

So, if you're in Paris, don't lock yourself out, so to speak. Selfie it!

frenchmen kick squirrel off grand canyon

Two men, apparently French, were caught on camera doing something awful at the Grand Canyon.

They were filmed luring a squirrel with crumbs, laying a trail right up to the edge of the canyon, where the two horrible men were wearing only boxer shorts and cowboy hats as they prepared their act of random cruelty.

Once the squirrel was close enough to the edge of the canyon, one of the men put on a

He's on a boat! Or yacht or whatever. And so far, so good!

Chris Brown looks like he doesn't have a care in the world!

No neighbor threatening to shoot him for trespassing will ruin his European vacation!

The Loyal singer was spotted looking extremely content on a private yacht on the waters of Saint-Tropez, France on Wednesday afternoon!

Chris had a permanent smile on his face all day!

Can't remember the last time he's been this happy — but then again, he is on vacation. Who isn't happy on vaycays??

From Bronze Babe To Black Swan! Selena Gomez Rocks Two Very Different Looks At The Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation Gala!

Why only wear one gorgeous dress when you can wear two??

We assume that's what Selena Gomez was thinking when she attended the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation Gala with her gal pal Cara Delevingne in France last night, because she brought out two different ensems!

Her red carpet look was a sultry Emilio Pucci gown that draped over the 22-year-old's curves like it was made for her. She styled the dress with matching Casadei pumps and a few choice pieces of jewelry.

At some point during the event, Selly G. apparently had the time and space to change into a very different but equally enthralling Christian Dior number! She wore a LBD from the brand, but made it very much her own by adding a fabulous tutu and a veiled fascinator.

Both looks were completely captivating!

P.S. Leo raised $25 million for his Foundation (supporting environmental issues)! And would it really be a charity event if Bono wasn't there? No. And that's why he was!

In fact, Leo's own Harley Davidson Motorcycle, which was signed by Robert De Niro and Martin Scorsese, went for over $640,000! The icing on the cake? The auctioneer asked Leo to add his own John Hancock, which he will!

Wow!! Selena Gomez is getting racy lacy in Saint Tropez!

After flirting up a storm with Tommy Chiabra, the 22-year-old strutted around town with Cara Delevingne on Wednesday in a sexy LBD with mesh panels.

Not only did it show off her glowing tan, but it fit exactly right to flatter her trim figure! Dayum.

And she complemented it with her towering black stilettos, Ray Bans, and a cute top knot!

Not exactly the best to walk outfit to walk around town in, but it was definitely an attention-grabber!
